Because Why Not: Theo Epstein Gangnam Style

If you’re not going to use technology to make stupid music videos featuring folks you respect and admire, you’re doing it wrong.

It’s silly. It’s stupid. But it’s funny and it’s awesome. So why not?

It’s Theo Epstein Gangnam Style:

Brett Taylor is the editor and lead writer at Bleacher Nation, and can also be found as Bleacher Nation on Twitter and on Facebook.

    I’m not sure if this is a result of a slow news day, or Brett having entirely lost his mind.

    Either way, its hilarious. Thanks for this.

    I was disappointed, I was hoping for some different lyrics to the music.

      It would take A LOT OF TIME to find American words to fit the syncopation of Korean Rap, haha… But here’s a start
      Starting with
      (Ahh, Sexy lady)
      Heyy Ian Stewart
      (Op op op op oppan Gangnam style)
      Are are are are are-you healthy now
      (Ahhh, sexy lady)
      Heyy Scottie Baker
      Are are are are are-you healthy now

      (Oppan Gangnam style)
      Do it Chicago style
      (Gangnam style)
      Cubbie Style

    Is that how they’re going to open the Cubs Convention?

  8. MightyBear

    If the Cubs did sign Brandon McCarthy (which I hope they do) and Wood became a swingman, the Cubs would have no left handed starters. Is that right? Is that something they would do? Not sure about that.

    1. Matt

      Travis Wood is a lefty.

      1. MightyBear

        I know but it was mentioned earlier that if they signed McCarthy, Wood would probably go to the bullpen as long relief. That means the rotation would be Garza, Samardjia, McCarthy, Feldman and Baker. Pretty good but all right handed.

        1. Matt

          oh, i gotcha. my bad. Garza and Samardzija are locks. I hope Wood is too. Leave the last 2 spots open for competition between Baker, Feldman, and someone else (rumors are that the cubs are not done). My hunch is that Feldman goes to the pen.

    Pretty darn good!!! If you wanted to do it in a different way try throwing dice during part of it to compose the music, Then, see how it explodes.

    Ha! Good stuff.

  11. Bullpen Brian

    Awesome. Very funny! Just made Gangnam video earlier before checking in to BN. Got a good laugh when I saw Theo’s face tho :D

    My nickname at work was JibJab for like 5-6 years. Always been a fan of their site.

    I might be stealing this idea once we get closer to the holidays. Great job Brett. :)

                At any rate, feel free to use the video without attribution or take credit yourself, if you wish. After all, I was only inspired to do it by the inexplicable Tidrow-fascination that you guys have.
